Report: Browns among teams interested in WR Kamar Aiken

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Baltimore Ravens Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Free agency is just around the corner!

According to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, the Cleveland Browns are among six teams who are interested in free agent wide receiver Kamar Aiken.

Aiken was an undrafted free agent with the Buffalo Bills way back in 2011, but he didn't make his mark in the NFL until he landed with the Ravens in 2014. His breakout year came in 2015 as a starter, when he caught 75 passes for 944 yards and 5 touchdowns.

Last year, though, Aiken only had 29 catches for 328 yards and 1 touchdown as he was moved down on the depth chart due to the signing of WR Mike Wallace and the return of WR Breshad Perriman and TE Dennis Pitta from injury. Cleveland’s interest in Aiken could be either as a fall-back option if things go wrong in the negotiations with WR Terrelle Pryor, or a candidate to replace WR Andrew Hawkins in the slot, even though he’s not your prototypical slot receiver.
